5 Greatest Things said about Sachin Tendulkar by non-cricketers

Most professional cricketers have their own tale about the man known as Sachin Tendulkar. Their stories are usually about how they feared him, or how he crushed their team, or how he is modest and down the earth for his stature. Mostly they would talk about his super natural technique. But what does Sachin Tendulkar mean to the common eye? To the man who just admires him for who he is? Here is a list of 5 of the greatest quotes by men who haven’t taken up to the cricket field.

Sachin Tendulkar

“Beneath the helmet, under that unruly curly hair, inside the cranium, there is something we don’t know, something beyond scientific measure. Something that allows him to soar, to roam a territory of sport that, forget us, even those who are gifted enough to play alongside him cannot even fathom. When he goes out to bat, people switch on their TV sets and switch off their lives.”

- British Broadcasting Corporation


“On a train from Shimla to Delhi, there was a halt in one of the stations. The train stopped by for few minutes as usual. Sachin was nearing century, batting on 98. The passengers, railway officials, everyone on the train waited for Sachin to complete the century. This Genius can stop time in India!”

- Peter Rebouck, anAustralian journalist


Sachin was so focused. He never looked like getting out. He was batting with single-minded devotion. It was truly remarkable. It was a lesson.”

- Martina Navratilova, all time Tennis great


“I can be hundred per cent sure that Sachin will not play for a minute longer when he is not enjoying himself. He is still so eager to go out there and play. He will play as long as he feels he can play”.

- Anjali Tendulkar, Sachin’s wife


“I’ll see god when I die but till then I’ll see Sachin.”

“Commit all your sins when Sachin is batting. They will go unnoticed because even the lord is watching!”
